IMO Secretary General to open Chemical & Product Tanker Conference

International Maritime Organization (IMO) Secretary General Efthimios E. Mitropoulos is set to open London’s 3rd Chemical & Product Tanker conference on 8 March. IMO is the United Nations specialised agency with responsibility for the safety and security of shipping and the prevention of marine pollution by ships.

Run by the International Parcel Tanker Association (IPTA) and Navigate Events, the event sees the owners and operators of the world’s specialist tanker fleet meet to gain a full understanding of the key commercial, operational and regulatory issues facing the sector.

According to the conference organisers, delegates will be able to assess the latest vegoil, biodiesel and chemical trade predictions; achieve a fuller understanding of the vessel orderbook as well as discuss piracy, environmental and safety regulations.
